The performance of Denver Broncos after Elmway

An American Football team from Colorado started its career in the year 1960, and today emerged to become one of the most successful teams in the National Football League. They gained most popularity in the Elmway era along with the help of Dan Reeves who stood at the helm of fame during these years. Elmway also came to be known as the strongest and most agile quarterback of the franchise. After the Elmway-Reeves era, they have not seen such heights in their career, but still, they have maintained that strength which was inculcated into the team during the year of 1983-98.

In the same year, they went onto win the Super Bowl final and denying the defending champions New England Patriots a chance to win the cup three times in a row. They build such a strong defense for the seasons to come in the next five years that it established an NFL record of only one touchdown in the first five games of 2006.

They had to incur some losses in terms of players, matches, and coaches in the next years due to injured players and quarterbacks who were not capable to play with efficiency and strength.
